Today we’d like to introduce you to Chasity Wright.

Chasity, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I literally fell into Aerospace and technology. I enlisted in the USAF in 2002 where I was slated to be a telephone helper climbing poles etc. I hurt my knee really bad in the warrior course and couldn’t complete my fear of heights test. Due to my high scores instead of sending me home, the USAF gave me a new job – Satellite Communications, Space Systems, Ballistics, Telemetry, Missiles = Aerospace Engineering lol. Between my Junior and Senior year at Clark Atlanta University, I completed basic training, tech school, and came back with the confidence I needed to know that I was intelligent, smart, and very capable of success. Chasity is recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine as a 2018 TCX Fellow, a 2020 Ada Lovelace Nominee, and a member of the inaugural class for the 2020 Google For Startups Atlanta Founders Academy and the 2020 NASDAQ Mentorship Circle for Black Founders & Entrepreneurs.

We can start there…

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have been some ups and downs as expected. Tech generally is a safe bet and that’s all relative to your network, capabilities, and ability to deliver exceptional service.
